New Bento stuff! Plus catching up with food porn

Ok, I shouldn't have too much time off work. Let alone have spare time and sit in front of a computer and browse ebay.

Anyway, I look forward to going back to work tomorrow because I got myself some shiny new bento gear and I'm going to shamelessly promote some bento sites.

Yes, I was totally in need of kawaii side dish containers!
See Strawberry Mashi and Edgar the rat sniffing the new items from irrashai ?


It's so far one of the cheapest and best bento supply shops I have found, and they ship really really fast (5 days from Japan to Germany! wohoo!).

Another cute new site is I love Obento . They are a bit expensive, but the gallery is worth taking a short peek.
Also check out ShopKawaii for awesome bento boxes.


Yesterday I did some more bento shopping... finally gave in and bought a Mini Zojirushi... because you know, it was so cute! Can't wait for it to arrive.

I also did some cooking...

Okra Buried Treasure from Alternative Vegan... I do love okra. I do love okra and can't understand when people say they don't like it for its slimyness... try this, it's so not and lovely with the curry leaves! It was approved by an Indian friend of mine...
... just like this totally belated St.Pattie's Day food... I only returned from Heidelberg around 10 PM on said day, so I made some Irish stuff the day after- soda bread (the recipe from Vegan Planet rocks!), Irish Stew with TVP chunks and Cham(p) - I found a billion ways to spell this mashed potato dish. Can anybody help me out and tell me which version is correct?


And the queen of pasta dishes, Penne Puttanesca, after the recipe from Vegan Fire and Spice. I'm in love with this book. Must remember to write a review soon!



Now I'm about to totally ruin my foodie reputation. Yes, I do cook fast-food style stuff sometimes. If you can call that cooking. And I love burgamix.

Hi, I'm your swap partner for the blogging swap! Your food looks delicious and I really would like to see how you fill your bento boxes. Speaking about bento boxes, maybe I should finally get myself one too :)
